Whether you need something with basic noise cancellation for your daily commute like the second-gen Echo Buds or a fitness-focused pair like the Beats Powerbeats Pro, there’s now a pair of wireless earbuds well suited for nearly every occasion. Some, like the UE Fits, even conform to the shape of your ear to provide a secure fit that’s uniquely yours.
Regardless of the brand or model that speaks to you, however, we’ve scoured the internet to find the best deals currently available on true wireless earbuds. Of course, if you’re still trying to find the right make and model for you, make sure to check out our guide to the best wireless earbuds, which should help narrow down your options. We’ve also put together a guide to the best noise-canceling headphones if earbuds aren’t your thing.
Highlights across the range
Apple AirPods Pro deals
If you own an iPhone or multiple Apple products, the AirPods Pro are likely the best true wireless earbuds on the market for you. Unlike the base AirPods, the latest Pros offer better sound quality and feature active noise cancellation, not to mention seamless integration with iOS and a MagSafe-compatible charging case.
While the AirPods Pro carry a lofty $249.99 price tag, they also go on sale rather frequently. During Black Friday and Cyber Monday, for instance, we saw them drop as low as $160. They’re no longer available at that price, but you can still get a pair with the MagSafe charging case for around $197 at Amazon, Walmart, Target, and Best Buy.
Apple AirPods (second-gen) deals
Alternatively, you can buy a pair of second-generation AirPods — now the entry-level model — with either a wired or wireless charging case. The base AirPods normally retail for $129, but you can currently get the version with the wired charging case for around $119 at Amazon, Target, or Walmart.
If you prefer a little more convenience, you can also get a pair of the second-gen AirPods with a Qi-compatible wireless charging case for a few dollars more. Apple no longer sells the wireless configuration — and they’ve become increasingly difficult to find online — but you can still get them for $159.99 instead of $199.99 at Best Buy.
Apple AirPods (third-gen) deals
Last on the AirPods block is the recent third-gen model, the latest addition to the AirPods lineup. The earbuds blend a bit of the AirPods Pro look with the hard, plastic build of the second-gen model and come with a MagSafe-compatible charging case. They also offer IPX4 water resistance, improved sound quality, and retail for $179.
Although we recently saw the third-gen AirPods on sale for as low as $140, they currently can only be found for around $170 at Amazon, Target, B&H Photo, and Walmart. That’s only $9 off their typical retail price, but if you like the newer design and MagSafe charging, it might be worth considering.
Samsung Galaxy Buds Pro deals
Samsung has a few different wireless earbuds to choose from, including its latest flagship wireless earbuds, the Galaxy Buds Pro. These earbuds include active noise cancellation and some of the best sound quality of any Samsung earbuds to date.
During Black Friday, the Galaxy Buds Pro were more than $50 off, bringing the price down to around $150 — nearly an all-time low — in select colorways. Thankfully, Amazon, Best Buy, Samsung, and Target are currently matching that price, selling them in most colorways for $149.99.
Samsung Galaxy Buds 2 deals
Samsung released the Galaxy Buds 2 — a good-sounding pair of earbuds with active noise cancellation, wireless charging, and a subtle design — in August, and we’ve seen plenty of discounts since then at retailers like Woot and Amazon. Right now, for instance, you can get them at Woot for $99.99, their lowest price to date. While these are in new condition, they only carry a 90-day warranty from Woot. If that gives you pause, you can also buy them at Amazon, Best Buy, Target, and Samsung with a one-year manufacturer’s warranty for around $130.
Samsung Galaxy Buds Live deals
The Galaxy Buds Live are some of the more unconventional wireless earbuds on the market right now, but don’t let their bean-shaped design fool you. The Buds Live are a good option if you want earbuds that produce powerful sound and showcase marathon battery life. Right now, you can purchase a pair of the Galaxy Buds Live from Amazon, Target, Best Buy, and Samsung for around $100 ($70 off), which is nearly their lowest price to date.
Amazon Echo Buds (second-gen) deals
Like their first-gen predecessor, the 2021 edition of the Amazon Echo Buds are a great value. Amazon’s latest true wireless earbuds offer improved comfort and better noise cancellation, along with a terrific passthrough mode that ensures you can always hear what’s going on around you. The $119.99 earbuds also feature hands-free Alexa support and sound that’s remarkably satisfying, with more bass than the AirPods Pro and an appropriate amount of restraint when it comes to the high end.
The second-gen Amazon Echo Buds are often discounted at most retailers, in both the wired and wireless configurations. Right now, for instance, the latest Echo Buds are on sale at Amazon, Target, and Best Buy with the wired charging case for $49.99, easily their best price to date. We should note, however, that Amazon offers a 25 percent discount when you trade in select devices.
Jabra Elite 85t deals
In 2020, Jabra released the Elite 85t wireless earbuds, which are the highest-tier model in Jabra’s current lineup. They provide more advanced noise cancellation than the last-gen Elite 75t, however, they also feature less bass and an inferior fit. Like the rest of the models in Jabra’s current lineup, they even offer a rare feature that has yet to become standard in the true wireless earbud market: the ability to connect to two devices concurrently.
Right now, you can buy the Jabra Elite 85t at Amazon for $171.64 instead of $229.99 when you choose the copper-and-black colorway. That’s not as steep as their all-time low of $139.99, but it’s nearly a $60 discount. You can also buy them at Best Buy and GameStop for $199.99, if you prefer the black colorway.
Sennheiser’s Momentum True Wireless 2 deals
Sennheiser’s Momentum True Wireless 2 are another pair of excellent noise-canceling earbuds that are currently on sale. As noted in our review, the earbuds offer great ANC performance, customizable controls, and sound that can nearly match that of a premium pair of noise-canceling over-ear headphones. Normally $299.95, you can buy them in white right now at Walmart for $191 — one of their better prices to date — or in either colorway from Amazon and Sennheiser for just shy of $200.
Beats Powerbeats Pro deals
If you’re currently in the market for a reliable pair of wireless earbuds for your workouts, it’s hard to go wrong with the predecessor to the Studio Buds, the Beats Powerbeats Pro. These earbuds sport an over-ear hook that keeps them in place while you’re exercising; they also offer IPX4 sweat- and water-resistant, meaning you don’t have to worry about ruining them should your workout get intense.
Typically $249.95, the Beats Powerbeats Pro are on sale at Amazon, Best Buy, Walmart, and the official Beats storefront, all of which are also selling them in several colors for around $180. That’s not the lowest price we’ve seen the PowerBeats Pro go for — they were on sale for around $150 throughout most of November and December — but it’s still a hefty discount on what would otherwise be a $250 pair of earbuds.
UE Fits deals
After testing a pair for ourselves, we remarked in our review that the UE Fits were the most comfortable consumer earbuds on the market. That’s because, unlike the other wireless earbuds on this list, the UE Fits are uniquely capable of permanently molding to the shape of your ears in just 60 seconds, making them a great choice for those concerned their earbuds may come loose or fall out. At the same time, however, we also found that they offer good sound quality, as well as lengthy, eight-hour battery life. Normally $199.99, you can get them right now for just $164 from Ultimate Ears.
